That should be easy. Look for brackets that fit 2" tubing. Wakeboard boats along with fishing boats and the like should have plenty of available tower brackets.

Monster Tower Universal Tower Brackets (Pair) Although a USA website you should get the point.

Personally I would weld what you want on. It will be cheaper and stronger.

Depends, if you could get 4 in a rectangular pattern on the "A" frame you could bolt a plate onto them & use the plate as a base for mounting bits onto. Without seeing the A frame it's hard to tell. Welding is fine & preferable, but it would need tigging & polishing to look right.


.....sh1t happens.......
